This too

i know it's not likely to happen but for short term you could try blocking 58.253.* or 58.253.243.* and 58.253.246.* and 58.253.255.* since all the users we've ever had from those IP ranges are these dvd rip software spam guys

executioneer Jan 7th, 2010 07:02 AM

there's another, 58.253.243.177

Dr. Boogie Jan 7th, 2010 07:25 PM

Oh, I tried that argument before.

The problem is that even though those particular ranges include mostly spammers (or all spammers), we haven't banned them yet on the off chance that a real user might show up therein.

executioneer Jan 7th, 2010 08:05 PM

well the three-octet ones have gone thru before, so that could still work maybe?

elx Jan 8th, 2010 07:53 AM

i bet if you put the question "are you human?" with an empty form only accepting the answer "yes" that would work :3

Zhukov Jan 8th, 2010 09:30 AM

So... then they become human simply by answering 'yes'? :\

I'm for it!

executioneer Jan 14th, 2010 08:44 AM

someone ban 89.149.244.88, i REALLY hate the spambots that send you PMs and there's been three from that IP :(

Pentegarn Jan 14th, 2010 08:55 AM

Honestly I am leaning more and more toward the policy of if you have the default new user avatar you get banned automatically for posting in the fourms :P

executioneer Jan 14th, 2010 10:15 AM

problem with that is, a lot of the newer bots are actually putting non-default avatars :(

I just received a PM from a spambot with a custom avatar. They're learning!


Also, one of the admin powers is that you can delete all the PMs a person has ever sent, assuming they haven't already been deleted. So if you are wanting to report a spam PM you've received, but it disappears suddenly, that's why.

If you've read the messages, I can pull them out of your brain and replace them with thoughts about how much you love the Doc Mock show.

kahljorn Jan 18th, 2010 03:29 AM

lol powerleveling345s :O

too bad there's no way to report people or some shit before they can spam it up

Dr. Boogie Jan 18th, 2010 05:35 PM

One of the last ones banned had his time zone set for Kaliningrad, South Africa.

Pentegarn Jan 19th, 2010 09:24 AM

Might want to look into ximike0119. No posts yet but he's set off all my red flags from what I have looked at thus far.
